LG Fathom for Verizon to spread its Windows Phone love on May 27
The LG Fathom VS750, also known as the first Windows phone by LG to be launched by Verizon, started its unofficial lifespan at the beginning of April, when it was spotted in Verizon's internal systems. These first signs of life were then succeeded by a new rumor at the very end of the same month, which suggested that the Windows Mobile 6.5 phone will be coming out in May.

Now a few of our insiders contacted us in order to share some hot info with the world - the launch timing of the smartphone. By the looks of it, the LG Fathom VS750 will be first released through Verizon's B2B channel on May 27, and will then be made available through all other channels on June 3.

Currently, we know quite a few details about the LG Fathom's specs sheet, including the existence of a 3.2-inch resistive WVGA screen, 3.2MP camera with VGA video recording, 3.5mm jack, Wi-Fi, GPS and global CDMA + GSM 3G connectivity. Still, neither of these is confirmed, so we'll just have to wait until that thing becomes official.

This isn't a windows 7 phone so who cares? Touch resistant, small screen, worse than the LG Ally, and that just got released so who cares about this phone?

I've never seen a capacitive LG screen, but yes, their resistive screens are garbage! They always seem to fail after a few months...

LG phones SUCK! And who wants Windows 6.5 anyway?

The only redeeming feature of that phone is the keyboard. Which will probably be ruined by that huge d-pad on the right hand side...sigh

It may be a nice phone - but at the end of the year we will see WINDOWS 7 - I know microsoft plans to carry to lines of WINDOWS phones - I wonder how upgradeable this OS will be?

This phone is like an Env Touch only a slider. Plus a crappy OS and a $30 date plan. Who would buy this? If your going to buy a smart phone, why wouldn't you get something like, either DROID or the Palm Pre if price is an issue.

It's one thing to bash LG, especially something that runs s*itty Windows, but then you go and put "Palm Pre" into your ammunition? Please.

I'm saying that even the Palm Pre is better than this.

If this WASN'T a smartphone that required the data plan, id be less hard on it. But there's no reason to buy it when you got the touch pro 2 and droid that are far better.

Phone is weak but left out 1 important feat: 1GHz snapdragon.

My biggest question is: What is up with LG and their 3.2 Megapixel camera limit? Can they possibly make a camera with better resolution with that for Verizon? Inquiring minds wanna know cause 3.2 MP is now passe.

Haha now that you mention it, it also seems 3.2 is also their max for screen size too. LG seriously needs to step up their game.

F*CK EVERYONE WHO IS SO BRAIN DAMAGED FROM ANDROID. LG makes good phones, just becuz it isn't a freakin Froyo, 1 GHz processor, memory hog, 8- megapixel piece of crap, doesn't mean it isn't a good phone.

What are you talking about? Are you stupid?

Are you able to fully think of an actual response?

I'm inclined to agree with you elpuser. You are absolutely right; why bash a phone that hasn't been thru the customer "field test"? Here's my main gripe though: LG's track record with their touch screen phones. Out of all the ones they've released so far, only the Versa has been virtually "problem free". The enV Touch had a host of issues before its last update. I won't even talk about the Dare or the Voyager. But I am reserving judgement for not only the Fathom, but the Ally as well. Before they started making touch screens, LG was Verizon's "bread and butter" phone. Lately, it's been more like the yucky crust pieces you find at the bottom of the toaster. Let's just hope things change for them with these releases.
